Papa wrote a oner.

Not in the least intimidated by the physical and philosophical heft of 'Moby-Dick,' Hemingway's novella, 'The Old Man and the Sea' stands next to Melville's triumphal door-stop and dares to ask which is the ultimate fish story. This writer, being a coward, chooses 'The Old Man and the Sea' on technical grounds: Moby-Dick was not a fish. Thus thoughtful readers are left to decide for themselves.

My Favorite Hemmingway

I have read many of Hemmingway's book and this one is my favorite. I read it to my son when he was about nine and he loved it also. There are wonderful images conveyed of an earlier Cuba, the ocean, fishing and aging in this timeless classic. Short and sweet, this book is perfect for an afternoon, or a vacation read while on a cruise.

A Piece of Literary Art

what i really liked about this book is the ability of the author to intrigue the reader mostly by his narrative, despite the lack of dialogue. Only a master at his talent could achieve that.
